Although the setlist is absolutely standard and the renditions are mostly kinda short, the playing is excellent. I'm only rating it a 4 because there are so many more interesting shows in terms of exploration.

Another great Chappell mix...
I have been checking out all of Chris Chappell's "Sick Bits" mixes, and I have been consistently really impressed. I wish every show could be heard as a Aud/SBD mix. Love it. Would love to see what could be done with 2/3/79, another relatively unheard gem.
This is a wonderful show! Despite the brilliance of Manor Downs, I actually feel more comfortable with the Scar-Fire here: more homey and heart-felt, to me, less tweaky. Lovely. Like the earlier reviewer says, Garcia playing like he is committed to every note.

Bobby Gold Wings
Well I just listened to the last half of the second set (whole show actually), and it just keeps getting better. Overall this show has a few things going for it... a great tribal Fire, Brent, Bertha opener, engaging drums, strong finish, an inspiring wheel. This is one of those shows that won't make you loose your head, you'll appreciate it more. The sunshine daydream portion of Sugar Mags is rip snorting wonderful. Bob prooves he can wail Donna back into the stone age. Just classic stuff in the end here. US Blues is that run down the road and wake up the neighbors to tell them how wonderful the world is good.

this is a good one
i got through space and the opening notes of Wheel and had to write a post. great sounding show, great mix. i'm going to continue going thru the sick bits shows, 9-19-70 is sick too...thanks Chappy. crystal clear vocals and the previous poster is right about jerry and his trademark ability to play every individual note to perfection listening to the dead on LMA is the only time i wish i was older...or at least had jumped on the bus thru the 70's. 90's dead is great and i have my own memories (age 34) but this old stuff is filthy

This is one of the 82s that has held up for me on countless replays. It's got that subtle polyrythmic swing thorughout. The versions of Bertha, Greatest, Birdsong, BEW, and Let It Grow are winners. Like the Greek '81 show, the Scarlet-Fire is a classic west coast version, taking their time to develop things fully without that rushed, need-more-drugs edge that you sometimes get in the early 80s. Esp. in the Scarlet Fire, Garcia has total commitment to his solos, each note opening out and evolving into the next with energy and purpose. Bobby and Brent are connected at the waist with an intricate "splashy" sound at times. Sure, you can simply call this Good Old Grateful Dead, but 82 was nothing if not squeaky tight, and during the first two thirds of this show, they are focused. I begin to lose interest with the fast version of Playin, but I treasure the rest of the show. Thanks for the upload.
